Pioneers – a selection of spin-offs
Axfoundation accelerates and innovates practical solutions for a more sustainable society. Our way of working enables us to start off with an initially small-scale solution, prove it successful and then scale it up and outwards for transformative change. Some initiatives are picked up by others to develop further. Some are exported internationally. Others are spun off to a company. Here are a few examples of successful pioneers.
Axfoundation develops practical solutions related to the things we buy, the food we eat and the resources we use.
”Axfoundation combines impartiality with high ambitions, flexibility, a practical focus and strong partnerships. We find strength in our access to a large corporate group. It gives us the power to test new ideas and the opportunity to influence and contribute to transformative change. We see ourselves as a lab for new ideas – a ‘do tank’ rather than a think tank.” – Alexandra Mörner, Chairman of the Board

This is is how we do it
Axfoundation’s ambition is to contribute to transformative and positive development in society by exploring new solutions through smart collaborations. We work concretely and practically to bring about long-term change. Together with partners across sectors and industries, we tackle local and global sustainability challenges based on concrete issues related to the things we buy, the food we eat, the resources we use, and the people we meet. Believing strongly in business as a driving force for change, we often initiate and run projects together with the private sector. Often, we start with a pilot project in a company and then broaden the approach by including relevant partners and providing small-scale solutions with growth power. Ones the initiatives have sprouted and proven successful, it is time for us to hand them over to bloom. This is how we do it.
